It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
1. Our final SOL party!
I moved our 1st period celebration to Monday morning when parent e-mails informed
me that two of my platinum writers would miss the celebration due to a field trip.
My morning crew set the stage for our party with this colorful illustration on the whiteboard.
Students created posters with their top four slice of life entries and chose one slice to share
at the celebration, I awarded prizes, and we enjoyed treats and lively conversation.
Someone is making a new home at this spot outside our kitchen window.
3. Poetry Alive!
Due to the generosity of Friends of the Library, our public library
brought Poetry Alive to six classes of our sixth graders on Friday afternoon.
It was a fabulous finale to Poetry Month.
I was randomly selected to portray Tillie in Silverstein's "When Tillie Ate the Chili."
I loved running amok in front of 180 sixth graders!
